DURANGO, Colo. — A former Fort Lewis College football player who shot two people, killing one, has been sentenced to 35 years in prison.
The Durango Herald reports (http://goo.gl/BUXVXI ) 23-year-old Tyree Ogsbury-Jones was sentenced Wednesday after previously pleading guilty to second-degree murder and felony burglary.
Prosecutors say he and Aaron Williams, also a former FLC football player, broke into a condominium at the Iron Horse Inn in March 2015. Once inside, Ogsbury-Jones shot Keith Moore and Daniel Johnson.
Moore survived, but Johnson died at a hospital.
A dispute over marijuana plants was said to be the cause of the shooting, but Ogsbury-Jones’ defense points to substance abuse and anxiety as contributing factors.
Williams was sentenced to 13 years in prison earlier this year for his role in the shooting and burglary.
